Treatments (Face) - DIFFERIN - Acne Treatment Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

Differin has worked really well for me so far. I used Tazorac .1% gel for 11 years, through my late twenties and thirties, and it helped with my hormonal acne as well as anti-aging. It became too expensive for me to continue however, as I turned 35 and was no longer able to get it covered as a primarily anti-acne treatment. For about a year I decided to stop all retinoids and see how my skin …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Mia

Jul/01/2010

I've been using the Mia for about a week and have already noticed a huge difference. I resisted getting one for a long time because I already take really good care of my skin and wasn't sure it would be beneficial to add the Mia to my routine. Lately though, I've been having trouble getting decent daily exfoliation to get my skin smooth and even- I use tazorac at night and though …Read more

Skincare - Face - Keys - Solar RX SPF 30 Therapeutic Sunblock

5.0

Jun/25/2010

I've been using this product on my face and neck every day for about 1.5 years. My skin is combo/oily and I agree with other reviewers who say it makes skin pretty oily, but I feel like dewy skin is just the price to pay to for good sunscreen protection, day in, day out. I used to use extremely high protection, chemical, European sunscreens on my face like La Roche Posay and Avene, but …Read more

Lips - Arbonne - lip saver sunscreen spf 30

Jun/24/2010

Man, I have to side with those reviewers who said this tastes nasty! I had to toss it out after one application, because for the next couple hours it filled my mouth with a persistent gross chemical sunscreen taste. It's a shame because the consistency is pretty nice, not too hard and waxy, and goes on smooth and shiny, and vegan lip balms with SPF are incredibly rare, but there's no …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Dr. Woods - Pure Black Soap

Jun/18/2010

I've been using the version with shea butter as a face wash for the past month or so and am so far liking it. As others have stated, it is slightly exfoliating especially if you let it sit on your skin for 30-60 seconds before rinsing. However, I dislike the smell. I have nothing against the natural smell of black soap or shea butter, but this smells like they added some fragrance oils to …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Body Lotion - Daily Shade Formula SPF

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/18/2010

I recently bought another bottle of this stuff after having used it a few years back. I didn't remember liking it very much, but decided to give it another try, since I was looking for a decent, vegan-friendly daily lotion with SPF that I could use on my hands. This stuff is ok- I don't find it greasy, to the contrary I actually don't find it quite moisturizing enough, but that may …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Goody - Spin Pin

I am so disappointed, but I can't get these to work for me! I have very straight, rather fine hair, and every time I try a bun it just falls out. I've tried screwing them in close to my scalp, from top to bottom and also sideways, and even using a ponytail holder, but my hair just does not want to stay up in these no matter what...bummer.
